6
7 Fix bug 20597: Skip RCS files when updating modules
8
9 Fix bug 49926: Add a --assume-kernel flag to modules-update. This
10 requires a companion patch in module-init-tools-3.0-r2 to handle
11 the same flag in generate-modprobe.conf; this dependency won't be
12 handled in the baselayout ebuild since it only affects livecd
13 building.
14
15 06 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
16
17 In net.eth0, fix many instances of loops like "for ((i = 0; i <
18 100; i = i + 1))". The problem here is that the middle comparison
19 is being interpreted as a bash conditional, which means that it's
20 doing string comparison by default. It needs to be "i -lt 100"
21
22 Fix bug 34827: net.eth0 breaks when localized because the ifconfig
23 output changes. Wrap ifconfig in a function that overrides
24 LC_ALL=C
25
26 Fix bug 48305: Provide a new network configuration variable
27 ifconfig_fallback_eth0 which allows one to specify a fallback
28 configuration in case DHCP fails.
29
30 Fix bug 50246: Give root an invalid password ("*" in /etc/shadow)
31 in the default baselayout. This prevents the first reboot after
32 installation from having a blank password.
33
34 05 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
35
36 Fix bug 48595: Make sure $(id -u) is zero (root user) when running
37 init scripts to avoid a lot of error messages.
38
39 Replace many lines of awk with two lines of grep in
40 init.d/localmount
41
42 Fix bug 44316: Use 0644 instead of 0640 for resolv.conf in net.ppp0
43
44 03 May 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
45
46 Update to version 1.10.20 of Debian's start-stop-daemon (contained
47 in dpkg at http://packages.debian.org/testing/base/dpkg). This
48 fixes bug 22686 (start-stop-daemon in baselayout doesn't allow
49 altered nicelevel).
50
51* rc-scripts 1.4.10 (25 Apr 2004)
52
53 25 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
54
55 Fix typos in sbin/rc: "try try mount" and "mount ... & >/dev/null"
56 Also removed the errstr double-checking since the need for that is
57 alleviated by these typo fixes.
58
59 23 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
60
61 Fix bug 48629 (/sbin/rc fixups for udev) with patch from GregKH
62
63 Fix bug 40987 (gentoo should be able to boot with an empty /dev)
64 with patch from Spanky. The patch avoids redirection to /dev/null
65 when it doesn't exist; this was breaking /sbin/rc.
66
67* rc-scripts 1.4.9 (15 Apr 2004)
68
69 15 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
70
71 Fix bug 47111 (severe depcache problems) with tons of help from
72 dswhite42 and the rest of the crew in that bug. Thanks guys!
73
74* rc-scripts 1.4.8 (14 Apr 2004)
75
76 14 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
77
78 Fix bug 47623 (error removing inet6 addresses) with patch provided
79 by Vlad Yasevich.
80
81* rc-scripts 1.4.7 (12 Apr 2004)
82
83 12 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
84
85 Fix bug 47218 (net.eth0 broken for vlans) with patch provided by
86 Andy Dustman. Fix bug 47250 (depscan.sh fails to create
87 /var/lib/init.d/* directories) with patch from Terje Bergström.
88
89* rc-scripts 1.4.6 (08 Apr 2004)
90
91 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
92
93 Update patch from Gustavoz; -ln /bin/bash should have been -nl /bin/bash
94
95* rc-scripts 1.4.5 (08 Apr 2004)
96
97 08 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
98
99 Patch init.d/checkroot to list / (root) only once in mtab; see bug 38360.
100 Patch from Gustavoz to livecd-functions.sh to run bash instead of login on
101 serial consoles, necessary due to scrambled root passwords.
102
103* rc-scripts 1.4.4 (07 Apr 2004)
104
105 07 Apr 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
106
107 Patch from Gustavoz for Sparc console: Fetch LIVECD_CONSOLE from dmesg
108 output. Also support 4800 baud correctly.
109
110 16 Mar 2004; Aron Griffis <agriffis@gentoo.org>:
111
112 The changes in this commit pertain primarily to
113 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19695
114 http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35736
115
116 Specify routes as an array per interface, for example:
117 routes_eth0=(
118 "-net 10.1.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.5"
119 "-net 10.2.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw 10.0.0.6"
120 "-host 10.3.0.1 dev eth0"
121 )
122
123 You can optionally use the gateway variable or just put the default route
124 in the routes variable. The following two are REDUNDANT:
125
126 routes_eth0=( "default gw 10.0.0.5" )
127 gateway="eth0/10.0.0.5"
128
129 Old configuration variables in /etc/conf.d/net are fully supported and
130 used transparently if ifconfig_eth0 is missing. In other words, this new
131 script is fully backward-compatible. However you can get rid of
132 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0 and netmask_eth0 if you want by
133 using the new syntax:
134
135 ifconfig_eth0=(
136 "10.0.0.6 broadcast 10.0.255.255 netmask 255.255.0.0"
137 "192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0"
138 "123.456.789.1"
139 )
140
141 Full backward compatibility so no danger to screwing up users relying on
142 existing /etc/conf.d/net setup
143
144 NET_DEBUG can be set in the environment for copious debugging output
145
146 Deprecate [ ] in favor of [[ ]] which has fewer quoting issues and
147 better functionality (and is even slightly faster)
148
149 Properly localize all variables, including variables returned by
150 setup_vars
151
152 Allow full options for every ifconfig command, both base address and
153 aliases via ifconfig_eth0, replacing the convoluted and less-functional
154 iface_eth0, alias_eth0, broadcast_eth0, netmask_eth0
155
156 Provide full support for static routes via routes_eth0
157
158 Fix potential quoting problems in setup_vars by using better eval syntax
159 instead of eval echo
160
161 Display IP addresses while configuring, both DHCP-retrieved and
162 statically set addresses
163
164 Collapse redundant caching of $? since eend returns $? again
165
166 Report when keeping kernel configuration for an interface along with IP
167 address gleaned
168
169 Don't reset the default gateway if it is already set correctly
170
171 Don't bind default gateway to particular interface when /sbin/route is
172 called so that it can survive if there is more than one interface on the
173 required subnet. (Old behavior can be obtained by setting
174 routes_eth0="default gw 1.2.3.4 dev eth0" if you really want it)
175
176 Don't bomb if default gateway can't be set since that doesn't
177 necessarily mean that the interface configuration is invalid.
178 (Old behavior was completely broken, but commented section
179 demonstrates how to do it right if necessary)
180
181 iface_stop no longer relies on configuration in /etc/conf.d/net AT ALL.
182 This is very good because it means you can put new configuration in
183 /etc/conf.d/net, then restart the interface and the old configuration will
184 be properly shut down.
185
186 iface_stop reports when it is releasing the DHCP lease
187
188* rc-scripts 1.4.3.13p1 (26 Feb 2004)
189
190 26 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
191
192 Remove /etc/DIR_COLORS, as coreutils provides it now.
193
194 Add RC_DEVICE_TARBALL to /etc/conf.d/rc to control use of device tarball.
195 Also modified /sbin/rc and /etc/init.d/halt.sh for this.
196
197 Start udevd if present.
198
199 Small fix to sbin/rc-services.sh related to mtime checking and 'net'
200 virtual service - it had no mtime generated, so check_mtime() failed
201 for it ...
202
203 25 Feb 2004; Martin Schlemmer <azarah@gentoo.org>:
204
205 Update to enable checking of mtimes on rc-scripts, and auto running
206 depscan.sh if needed. Also try to run depscan.sh when RC_GOT_DEPTREE_INFO
207 is not set instead of just erroring.
208
